The Amateur Traveler talks to Michael Soncina who returns to the show to talk about his recent travels in Southern Taiwan.
Michael took advantage of a Taiwan promotion targeting backpackers that opened up army barracks to provide inexpensive housing in this less-visited region of Taiwan. The highlight of Kaohsiung City is the Lotus Pond, an area surrounded by temples old and new.
Usually, the older style temples seemed to be dedicated to Confucius, but there are giant temples in the image of the Jade Emperor, which you can climb inside, and each floor offers unique art, as well there are the famous Dragon and Tiger pagodas.
Michael also celebrated New Years on Cijin Island with its famous seafood street.
